2005 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 152004

Seven to eight thousand Chevrolet Corvettes built in late 2004 are in a batch being watched by GM because there have been dozens of instances of the crank shaft pulley belt backing out and allowing the pulley to loosen or fall off. When that happens the car looses power steering and the rest of the functions run off the belts. The belt and pulley can also cause other damage under the hood. Production nuber Corvettes from over three thousand to over eleven thousand are in the group identified as problematic. Chevrolet has realease a technical service bulletin, tsb number (05-06-01-001A), but says it can not help buyers until after a failure. I own a Corvette in that group, and I fear that I can't trust the car to perform safely. I belong to several Corvette related internet forums, and I get reports of new failures every day. There are dozens of failures reported by members of just one forum. The failures have been occurring since November, 2004. GM is obviously not going to fix this safety problem without NHTSA inquiry, and I'd like NHTSA to ask GM to get serious about protecting the lives of their purchasers. Spontaneous loss of steer assist and fluid loss is a safety issue - in my opinion. Will NHTSA look into this situation before someone dies, please?
